    Man caught with gun at Dulles Airport checkpoint

    CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) -- A Fairfax County man has been cited by police after trying to bring a loaded gun through a security checkpoint at Washington Dulles International Airport.

    The Transportation Security Administration says officers detected the handgun with five rounds of ammunition in the man's carry-on bag Sunday. Airport police confiscated the weapon and cited the man on a state weapons charge.

    The TSA says there was no impact to airport operations. The man was allowed to board his flight.

    This is the third gun TSA officers have detected at checkpoints this calendar year.

    The agency says passengers are allowed to travel with guns only in their checked bags if they are unloaded, properly packed and declared. Passengers who bring guns to security checkpoints could face criminal charges and penalties up to $11,000.


    Comments

    I assume you meant to write, that this was the third gun TSA officers had detected at checkpoints AT DULLES this calendar year; and not all TSA officers at every U.S. airport. 

    Also, what specific State weapons charge did he violate ?  Is there not also, a Federal statute for airports, or are some airports fine with you bringing a loaded gun to the checkpoint ?
